What are the pros? Easy to grow, SVB resistant
What are the cons? Nothing
This is a GREAT squash with an unfortunate name! Vigorous vines stood up to heat, humidity, cycles of rain/drought and bounced back after deer damage. SVBs can't penetrate the vine, and once it started to toughen up I was able to discourage pickleworm with a barrier of hosiery material. The fruits are tasty, make great pies or savoury dishes. And...you can carve them for a beautiful white Jack-o-lantern! That last one is nice, since most white pumpkins are C Pepo or maxima, and are doomed in Southern climates by SVB. It didn't set as much fruit as some pumpkins, but I still got about six nice pumpkins out of it, which was pretty good considering poor weather conditions. It you want a versatile pumpkin-shaped white squash that can stand up to Southern conditions, this is a great pick.
